I recall hiking through a fire in Sequoia NP years ago that had been burning for month and had only burned about 500 acres. The Park Service had put up a sign deeming it a control burn and let people backpack through it. But that was back in the days before some batch of lawyers made such things impossible.

Seems weird to me that this fire grew so slowly. Here in So. Ca. it
can grow that fast in just a few hours.Golly
